I'm with you........thank goodness it got changed!!
Oh, I know you didn't. I only commented on that for those that aren't familiar with the area.
As a side note - one could nearly make it from one of those cities to another while still tacking at least partially north each time (again, not in the order I gave) ...
My point still stands. I wouldn't have been quite so hard on the AP story writer if he had said 'an outlying Dallas suburb' (which it may legitimately be called).
Dallas doesn't even abut Frisco ... were it not for Renner having been annexed into the legal entity known as The City of Dallas (technically speaking) would be even FURTHER away from Frisco (the center of Frisco is approximately 1/3 the way up in Collin county whereas central Dallas is located centrally in Dallas county and the closest the City of Dallas boundary lies to Frisco is only about 1/16 the way up into Collin County).
But that's the mentality of people these days. Pretty soon McKinney, Celina and VanAlstyne will be considered "suburbs" too.
Incidently, I didn't mention "The Colony" (a *real* city), Parker, Hebron, Murphy, Lucas, Fairview or Allen *all* of which are further south than Frisco ...
The Colony. I remember when that place first got started. "It'll never make it," they said. What's the population now? BTW ... I live in Allen. I have yet to hear Allen called a suburb. Go figure.
Good job forcing racism into the equation where there previously was NONE. This has been a school mascot for 78 YEARS!!!
